Teach Yourself Xhosa is intended for all who are interested in learning one of the most widely spoken languages in South Africa. It is aimed at both South Africans and visitors to South Africa and those who are learning Xhosa from scratch, as well as those who want to brush up their existing skills.
Wherever possible, the communicative aspect of the language has been emphasised to give you a course which is useful and practical. Cultural background and information forms an integral part of the course and will help you get the most out of a visit to South Africa.
The book is divided into 16 units which range from basic functions and language usage in the initial units to a more varied and complex usage in the later units.
Material from Xhosa literature and magazines will broaden the range of your language and will give you the confidence to go beyond the pages of the book.
